Cartoon Network to end Toonami Block as of tonight (9/20)

Now, I've been out of touch with a lot that has been going on in the world in general due to Hurricane Gustav knocking out my power and my cable, and I realize that when you think about it for a minute it that it may have been coming for a while now, but to me this seems sort of out of left field. In any case, though I haven't actually watched Cartoon Network at all in a while, I'm still a bit sad to see this go. For a lot of us here in the US, the shows on Toonami were how a lot of us (here in the US especially) got into anime.
Come join the party.

If the speed of light is 983,571,088 feet per second, what is the speed of dark?

Wow, really? Damn, thats sad. Its been on for so long. All the old shows that been around for a while seem to be disappering. Theyre gonna cancel TRL in November. I mean I havent watched Toonami or TRL for years, but still, its kinda sad to see them go.

Agreed. Last time I watched Toonami was when Sailor Moon S dub was aired. Toonami is what got me into watching Sailor Moon and then finding out about the changes (smuncensored.com) and joining this forum. It's sad to see Toonami go, even though it did seem that Toonami had it coming.

So, what's going to happen to Naruto and One Piece now that Toonami is being canceled?

Maybe people will now loose interest in those anime's?
My favourite Cardcaptor Sakura quote *contains spoilers*:

Sakura: I love you Yukito-san!
Yukito: I love you too, but the one you love most isn''t me.
Sakura: *looks confused*
Yukito: You love your father right?
Sakura: Yes.
Yukito: And what about me?
Sakura: I love you.
Yukito: Aren''t the feelings quite similar?
Sakura: *realizes* They are. You have known for awhile haven''t you?
Yukito: Yes, you have always loved me as if I were a part of your family and I am grateful for that.
Sakura: Is there someone you love?
Yukito: Yes
Sakura: Is it..brother? (Touya)
Yukito: *eyes widen and then he smiles* Yes, I don''''t know what I would do without Toya. He made sure I didn''''t disappear.
Sakura: I''m sure he loves you too! He did everything to make sure you didn''t disappear! But if brother ever does anything to hurt my dearest Yukito-san, I will teacher him a lesson!
Yukito: *puts hand on her cheek* Thank you, Sakura-chan. When you find the one you love, if he ever hurts you, I will teach him a lesson.

I don't know about One Piece, but the last time I watched Cartoon Network, they seemed to really like Naruto (the way they liked DragonBall/Z/GT). It's possible that they'll still get timeslots on Friday or Saturday night or something.

I certainly hope people won't lose interest in Naruto and One Piece, especially now that Funi has started releasing their uncut DVDs of One Piece. It's the popular mainstream anime series like Naruto that help keep the anime industry alive. If people start losing interest even in popular shows, then I worry about the state of the rest of the anime industry. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Pokemon on Toonami, too? If it was, what's going to happen to Pokemon now?

Bye-bye, Toonami. Thank you for introducing me to... Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, ReBoot, and all three Tenshi Serieses. Plus other neat animes.
